El Paso forward Braslavski signs NAHL tender
The El Paso Rhinos of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Barak Braslavski has signed a North American Hockey League (NAHL) tender agreement with the Chippewa Steel of the NAHL’s Midwest Division.
Braslavski, 19, played in 25 games between the Fairbanks Ice Dogs in the NAHL and El Paso Rhinos in the NA3HL during the 2020-21 season. The 5’10/161 lbs. native of San Jose, CA, forward recorded 5 goals and 8 assists.
“Barak is a veteran of the NAHL and is another player with high character who will contribute immediately. He skates very well and can get to the net. He is a player who will be leaned on heavily next year and he is excited for that,” stated Steel Head Coach & General Manager Mike Janda.
Braslavski made his NAHL debut during the 2019-20 season, appearing in 36 games with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and recording 11 points.
He played youth hockey for the San Jose Jr. Sharks prior to his junior career.
A tender is a contract, of sorts, a player signs announcing his intentions to play for that particular NAHL team and that NAHL team only. Once a player signs a tender with an NAHL team, his playing rights belong to that team within the NAHL and he may not be recruited by any other NAHL team. Each team is granted ten (10) tenders, which includes one tender exclusively used on players from the NA3HL - plus or minus any trades - which became active on Nov. 1. Tendered players are not eligible for the 2021 NAHL Draft.
